Since the canister IS a part of the exhaust, we must remember that any changes to it will cause changes in power. The reason why nobody really notices any power increases when you instal just a can is because most companies put more of their research into the actual pipe because this is where you can make up most of your power. The companies make the cans as simple and as light as possible. A guy that I know called Rich Daly at Dyno Port and that is what he told him.
Most aftermarket cans are very similar to stock just minus the weight.
hardcore and pimped out,
your lesson in physics is helpful to some, but really I hope most people do only buy silencers for weight savings and or sound. And I dissagree that more research is put into the pipes, because forever now pipe builders have been trying to understand how the factory silencers can perform as weel as they do, yet be so quiet. Tons of R&D go into silencers
I bought one for my 700. This thing is practically a work of art and I've heard nothing but good about them. Haven't tried it yet as there is not enough snow in them thar hills.
I decided to go with the HPS after seeing and hearing one on their website. I have a MBRP can on a 97 Summit and it is nice too. My kid had a 95 XLT triple and he said my 97 Summit sounded like a Honda generator. I had to do something!

Isn't this the truth, I love any kind of motorsports but these Hogs go by my house in the country all summer long! The sound rattles my windows and shakes the ground, but try to upgrade your sleds exhaust and they are closing a trail somewhere.
